I Quit

Handing over the written notice to my beloved boss did two things immediately.


  1.  Instant fear - what was I thinking? The economy is hard. Gas and food prices keep increasing. How many people will be able to afford beautiful excess, such as artwork? Can I reach my monthly income requirements?

  2.  Absolute certainty that this decision was meant to happen, and the timing is right.




Come September 2024, as my baby girl takes those two-giant steps onto the bus to head toward school. I will take several freeing, dancing, and electrified steps toward my art studio as a full-time artist. 


  • This is why I can reopen custom pet portraits.


  • This is why your support in sharing my artwork on social media, your 5-star reviews, and your words of encouragement mean EVERYTHING.


  • This is why, at 40 years of age, I am following my dreams with uncertainty, fear, and a crap load of determination and excitement. 


I quit, and I cannot wait to work for you.

Congratulations! I’m neither surprised nor worried! You were born to share your gift. It’s not, “What if you fly..?” You’re already flying, Crystal. Enjoy the ride xo Lisa

Thank you so much! I am jumping for joy with a scared, happy face on. It's a big step. Not an easy one. But one I felt I had to just get out there and try!

People like you make it possible ❤️
